Re: James Bond Lego, what could it be?

Update: The Hungarian Lego Store website apparently jumped the gun, and accidentally revealed that it is in fact an Aston Martin DB5 that's on the way. The offending page has since been taken down, and there weren't any pictures of the set, but it's nice to know for sure. According to the leak it will cost 49,999 Hungarian Forint (£135, directly converted), and will be initially available on 1st August before going on general sale on 8th August.

That's contrary to rumours it would arrive on 15th August for Lego VIPs (31st for regular buyers), which came from a leaked Lego release calendar. So it looks like we'll have to wait and see what Lego has to say on 18th.

Re: James Bond Lego, what could it be?

Even before the leak I assumed it was going to be the Aston Martin since their logo is right there. Any word if it's just a one off, or the first in a series of Bond sets? The latter seems to be more likely if they went through all the trouble of securing the rights from EON.

ajb007/lol ^ That's not a teaser!  It's a reveal.

Did anybody not expect it to be the DB5?

^This.

With the AM logo on the teaser page it was either that or the DB10 and the DB10 isn't as well known as the DB5.  ajb007/martini

Pussy Galore: “My name is Pussy Galore.”
Bond: “I must be dreaming.”

Re: James Bond Lego, what could it be?

Yes the Aston logo was pretty much a dead giveaway.  I wonder if this is the first in a series of Bond vehicles?

Re: James Bond Lego, what could it be?

I find it interesting that both this and the first phase of the OB 007 collection are released when a Bond film isn't even filming yet. Not that its completely unheard of, of course. You just usually see stuff like this launched around the time a film about to be released.

Maybe to keep the market warm?

Much like the OB shorts and the Commander watch, a very disappointing use of the license. If you count Spectre (and I do), EON is on a terrible cold streak. Hopefully Danny Boyle can snap it.

Unfortunately, I don't think Danny Boyle will have much to do with the marketing and licensing. But I hope he can give us a better film.

Thanks David.

Is anyone a little disappointed with that image if true? I don't think they've done the DB5 justice. Looks a bit boxy to me. The rear quarters and front end and bonnet are poor. ajb007/crap

Screw the Technics set, the props on display at Leicester Square alone will be worth the price of admission!

At the Lego store? So I take it that Skyfall model will be there?

It looks like a tank.

I hope the final version will look more like a DB5
